A community portal is a website that provides relevant information to a specific group. Local governments and school districts are common users of online portals as a way to inform their audience of current news, views, and activities. An effective portal has regular updated information, is easy to navigate, and has a strong online following. It should be dense with up-to-date information that also links to other websites. A successful online portal is one that has trustworthy content and loyal following of regular users who continue to visit the site to find new information.
Prism realizes that the main purpose of a community portal is to provide value to the community it is serving. So we design our community portals to be the online starting point for that community and provide convenient access to all relevant information. Common elements of Prism’s community portals are articles, classifieds, a calendar, groups, and contact lists. We also can offer your online games, Polls, Quizzes, and Interactive Videos. These online environments also often incorporate interactivity by using blogs, forums, and other social media links. Most portals also allow users to sign up for RSS feeds or email newsletters as a way of letting the community know what is new on the portal.
A community portal should also benefit the wider audience. This type of website is a great marketing device for a community or school district. If used correctly, it is a reflection of the community.
